Are you some lazy-arse bitch lying down while reading the forum? :?

Well that’s only because you CAN! :lol:

New version v1.5 of the Classic Browser is imminent…

And remember, unlike Chrome, FireFox or Edge, the Classic Browser does not allow any form of history, trends, statistics, tendencies, patterns, or details of user activity to be written to the user’s hard disk so forensic software CANNOT extract any information about your browsing activities simply because there is nothing there to extract!

Also, when users navigate from site to site the Classic Browser always ensures that no information of your previous location is carried over to the next, as well as sending a “Do not track” in all request headers regardless. (<-- DNT sending starting from v1.5). It also specifically disallows Google servers from snooping (by obstructing them) and major privacy violators; like Google Analytics, will be most unhappy when people are online via this browser.

Furthermore, the Classic Browser is NON-programmable to developers so it cannot serve as a Trojan horse to malicious “apps” such as search redirectors that popular programmable browsers often suffer from. Nobody can modify the behavior of this browser except for the user via the harmless browser options.

The Classic Browser is indeed an impenetrable bastion of liberty, security, speed, efficiency and power.

It’s by no accident that the browser’s motto is…

“Designed to serve YOU not corporations!”

And you’d better believe it! :wink:

Future wish list…

I’m looking into introducing a Skype-like service into the browser. Basically, you’ll be able to connect with any other Classic browser user in a browser tab without membership accounts, etc.

When someone calls you you’ll get a message popping up that looks like…

“<Peter> from <Limassol> is requesting a video conference”

And you’ll be able to decide with options like…

“Accept”, “Postpone --> Set time”, “Deny”, “Deny & Block”

Or when you are the one making a call you’ll be able to select the person from your list of added friends like…

Video conferencing friends:

1. <Peter> from <Limassol>
2. <Jason> from <London>
3. <Anna> from <Frankfurt>
4. <Roger G> from <Valletta>


This feature is not easy to implement but I’m hopeful that I’m gonna pull through and get it done (lots of research ans study), I may use WebRTC technology or something else I have in mind.

Unlike Skype, I will keep it short, sweet and simple (ie: one on one calling only) and with very basic options because after all it’ll just be an extra within a browser but it *will* work fast and reliably.

Regards GR.

New version v1.5 of the Classic Browser is now available:

* WebGL detection/usage issues discovered and corrected. :oops:

* Flash player plug-in hiccups finally resolved! You can now toggle Flash in the Browser Options > Content Settings menu. It is on by default, no need to R-click against flash videos. In fact, if you R-click on a video it’ll load in another tab full screen. Same with images… right click on them and enjoy the magic as you roll the mouse wheel.

* Thanks to the two fixes above, Chromium 58 engine & Node.js 7.9.0 can now become standard for the Windows 7+ version of the browser.

* New “Adjust Page” option from the main menu offers a vast array of powerful site manipulation tools via an easy to use control panel. ie: Surf the Internet while lying down.

* For developers, up to 22 browser resolutions are now easy to set for testing the appearance of one’s websites under “Browser Resolution”. Of course, you can also drag the browser to any size from its sides and corners.

* Web Widgets are now supported in a menu of their own. Add/delete widgets as you please… Iframe, Object, and Embed based widgets are supported while inline Script based are not for security reasons.

* RSS & Atom Feeds are now detected and displayed in a cool built-in viewer. Tip: Instead of loading multiple slow websites to skim through the news use RSS Feeds of the same websites instead. RSS Feeds are very small and fast lists of the main headlines with the option to jump to the article if desired.

* Many miscellaneous cosmetic changes here and there such as the application bar now having an adjustable transparency option under Browser Options > Appearance Themes. (Transparency has since been disabled due to many issues it was causing)

* Further fine-tuned Chromium engine… too complex to analyze here.

That’s it for now boys and girls… :D

Hi kmwit, I only just spotted your post.

The node-webkit web-app "packaging system" I'm using, can actually handle any platform including Linux but I've never ventured out of Windows because it is where I was born and bred.

Other operating systems for me is like going to an alien planet... parts unknown... danger lurks... you get the drift! :)

If somebody out there is familiar with Node-Webkit and wants to help by generating the browser for other platforms they are welcome to get in touch and we'll arrange it.

As for Chromium... it is an "engine" that takes a HTML script (webpage source code) and interprets the script so as to display it for you in a window.

Browsing experiment #1:

Let us navigate to the social magazine ExtraTV's RSS feed located at...

https://feeds.extratv.com/rss

What do the different browsers display? :?

In Google's Chrome you get gibberish...

In Explorer you get toilet paper...

In FireFox you get grandpa's newspaper...

And in the Classic you get class! :)
